When most people think about the dog muzzles, the first thing that often comes in mind is the image of a violent, out of control dog. But it is not the only reason owners teach their dog to wear a muzzle. In this article we will discover some of the other quite common reasons for doing so.
If there is a risk of your pooch biting other pets or people, it is essential to keep him muzzled. It protects not only animals from injury but also you from getting into trouble. If your furry friend attacks a pet or person, you can find yourself in serious legal trouble.
Being a vicious dog is not the only reason to use a dog muzzle. Your veterinary doctor may insist on muzzling dog in order to prevent injury to others. It is not because your vet considers dog vicious, it is just because vet visits are often quite stressful for the canines and in some cases the procedures can be painful. When your dog experiences pain, he may try to bite the source of the pain in an attempt to make it stop.
Another reason to consider training your pooch to wear a muzzle is for effective grooming reasons. Pets, especially dogs, can be quite protective of their feet, and many will not tolerate having their nails clipped. Using a muzzle can put the mind of groomer at ease, and insures he/she will not be bitten by the dog.
When your canine companion is recovering from any medical procedure or injury, it is a common practice to put a cone around his/her head. It is to prevent your dog from licking and biting at his wounds, and to keep him from removing any stitches that may be present on the wound. However, if you have ever used one of these on your canine companion, you know how uncomfortable it makes him. In addition to this, it makes your dog look silly. Instead, you can consider using a dog muzzle, as it provides the same benefit while being more comfortable for your pooch.
Are Muzzles Bad For Dogs?
The answer of this question is ‘No’. As long as muzzle is worn properly, your pooch will be fine. You have to make sure that the muzzle is not too tight, and your dog is able to drink water if he gets thirsty. In addition to this, you should make sure you do not leave the muzzle on for long periods of time, and use it only while it is necessary. Otherwise, it may create anxiety problems for your pooch.
If used properly, the dog muzzle is an excellent tool for your dog. Training your dog to accept muzzle is usually a simple process, and after a little trial and error, your dog will accept this tool as willingly as he does a leash.
